So we all have heard that Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a long time supporter of Planned Parenthood, abruptly cut off their funding because of their
pro-life agenda new policy that forbids them from funding organizations that support a woman's right to choose are under government investigation, right?
In case you haven't, they did and are giving the BS excuse that they are simply severing ties because a Republican Florida senator launched an investigation to determine whether or not the women's health organization was using federal money to fund abortions.
Komen spokeswoman Leslie Aun said in a recent interview, "We want to maintain a positive relationship with them. We're not making any judgment."
We MIGHT have believed that if the breast cancer awareness group did not hire Karen Handel as Senior Vice President for Public Policy. The former Republican candidate for the Georgia governorship in 2010 has made her views against abortion and Planned Parenthood VERY clear over the last few years.
She openly expressed her vendetta against PP for providing abortions in a 2010 blog post reading, "since I am pro-life, I do not support the mission of Planned Parenthood." She's still not doing Komen any publicity favors and has recently retweeted a fellow pro-lifers stance on the issue that perfectly exposes the REAL reason PP lost funding from Komen.
"Just like a pro-abortion group to turn a cancer orgs decision into a political bomb to throw. Cry me a freaking river."
Basically, Handel is saying that all the women who can't afford healthcare and could have benefited from Planned Parenthood's possibly life-saving breast exams can go cry her a river.
Gee, that's real nice. We're sure breast cancer survivors will really appreciate that.
